I think Sachin or Ganguly should play atleast for another half an hour more to ensure an Indian victory. what do you think?

Hi, see there are 2 ways of getting out. One is to a really good ball and another is by your mistake. Uthappa, dravid and dinesh karthik really got good unplayable deliveries and can be forgiven. Sachin and ganguly got out by their own making, one stepping out carelessly and another chasing a wide ball. But they can also be forgiven for they steered india out of trouble before falling. Harbajan played his trademark atrocious shot instead of taking a single and giving the strike to dhoni. But he can also be forgiven for he is primarily a bowler. Kumble and sreesanth tried their best in my opinion. So forgive them also. THAT LEAVES THE LONE CULPRIT OUT, NAMELY VIRENDAR SEHWAG, who got out carelessly trying to steer the ball to third man when situation demanded him to play responsibly without gifting his wicket. HE ALONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR TODAY'S LOSS and should be shown the door without any delay. Thanks.

Nice analysis, it is very much clear from this analysis that Sehwag is primarily responsible. Anyway, I think, Team Management should come up to guide Sehwag to sort out the problem.

i think first opening uthappa failed .if he batted well ,the opening partner ship will become stronger .and also dravid failed in this match .but sachin tendulkar played well .he keeped the runrate better .if he had batted some more time india will have the more chances to win this match .

sometimes its bad luck that is why saurav and sachin couldnt stay longer, but i think Sri lankan captaincy was good, the way jayawardene rotated his bowlers was superb and he did a great job
